Food is simple and tasty and the atmosphere is great as your overlooking the pier.

I usually come here on my way leaving Yarmouth. Great view of the pier while enjoying a coffee. Breakfast is pretty good as well!

This nice-looking cafe in the lovely little town of Yarmouth promised much. Lovely seaside setting, cosy interior and very busy. However, the service was not very friendly and the hot food was not of good quality - burned pizza, with brick hard base and heaps of melted cheddar on top (never pit melted cheddar on pizza!); average soup; average macaroni...

this cafe should be closed ASAP staff rude espically women behind the till, food that makes you want to spit it out as soon as you put it into your mouth. Its a shame that the standards have dropped because I have been there before and the service was 10 times better

Called in for lunch on a recent visit to the Isle of Wight. We were most impressed with the friendly and efficient service and excellent selection of dishes on offer. Good home cooked food and a great location overlooking the Solent make this a must for any visit to Yarmouth.

Called in here after our 1st choice restaurant was full. Very busy cafe but still excellent service and lovely food. Always good for a light meal and cuppa.

There wasn't much open in Yarmouth late on a Friday afternoon on the 2nd January so it meant that the Gossips Cafe was busy! Fast efficient service, lovely cakes and scones with fab coffee and tea. Great location with views over the harbour watching the ferries arriving/departing.

A nice litle cafe with a good menu.Views across the harbour were a bonus. Reasonalbly pricesd. Fairly small so in high season it would probably be crowded, It appears popular with he locals which is a good advertisnment!

Nice cafe with great views across the Solent. Warm and comfortable. We had baked potatoes with beans and cheese. Was nice and filling. Hot chocolate was good too : ) A good spot for Famies, couples or friends to meet up.
